God knows that we struggle to find hope and hold on to it during difficult times. When life starts to test your faith, it can become challenging to find hope in the midst of your worry. Having helpful Bible verses when worried about your future can be helpful.
It is so easy to feel overwhelmed or discouraged about life!
We live in a world where there is a lot of hate, sickness, sin, and war that can easily steal the hope and joy you have for your future. God promises over and again in the Bible that he is protecting us and helping us through any obstacle we are faced with. When we draw near to him, he will bring us refuge (Psalms 91:4).
You might be worried about your finances or where you will move to once your house sells. Maybe you or a family member has been ill. Maybe you’re married and looking for ways that you can pray for your husband? Whatever the worry is about your future, know that you can pray to the Lord and he will help give you the strength to overcome anything, no matter how great or small it is.
We will experience setbacks and other misfortunes in our life, and it’s important to remind ourselves about God during these trying times. It’s during our struggles and moments of helplessness that we need God’s word and his wisdom the most.
